So it was an expensive record, but a record none-the-less.

I was there working on that boat before and after the run. Both motors ran great before and after the run.

Reggie & Mike are great boat builders and you have to love the competition. They both build FAST Offshore Powerboats and we are logged onto OSO. Keep an eye on Skippy & Trond and you never know about the future........
